  • The Skyelander 700c is a British made touring bike hand built by one of England’s top framebuilders, Lee Cooper.

    The lugged frame is built using air hardened Reynolds 631 for the main frame. The stays are Reynolds 525. An upgrade to Reynolds 853 main frame with Reynolds 725 stays is an option). The forks are Reynolds 631. 

    This frameset comes with a choice of a threaded steerer (1") for a quill stem or a threadless steerer (1 1 /8") for an ahead stem.

    It's designed with clearance for 35mm tyres with mudguards, or 45mm without mudguards.

    The frame's relatively long chainstays (450mm) and steel frame make this the ideal companion on a long distance loaded road trip, both strong and comfortable. 

    The Skyelander comes equipped with Shimano XT triple chainset (26/36/48) and XT rear derailleur, XT hubs, TRP RRL SR drilled hole levers, Dura Ace bar-end shifters (9 speed) and Nitto heat treated dirt drop bars finished with very comfortable bar tape.

    The bike is fitted with the excellent Avid Shorty Ultimate cantilevers. Shimano Deore XT V-brakes are also an option coupled with the Dia Compe 287v Evo  or Cane Creek V-brake levers. We also offer a disc brake version for an additional cost - emaill or call us to discuss.

    The wheels are handbuilt using Ryde Sputnik 700c rims on XT hubs, with Marathon Mondial Performance 35c tyres and Schwalbe inner tubes. Other rim choices are available as an upgrade.
